Do you remember these little birds I made last year for my colleagues at work?

I meet with my friend tomorrow and as she is having her birthday in just a few days (and because I am sure that she will hardly have time to meet me again before the beginning of 2009, having three kids, a full time job, holidays approaching and besides she doesn't live nearby), I will give her a small present tomorrow. I decided to make a little bird, which is not only stuffed with poliester stuffing but with a little bit of lavender, too. If I have time today (yes, it is time for my course again!), I will bake some cookies for her, otherwise I will just pin this blue bird on to a box of delicious pralines. She loves sweets and her favorite color is blue.

The bird is cute.

Happy Thanksgiving from Indiana - it is tomorrow, but I don't check the web at home, only at work. We have two days off for Thanksgiving.
I am baking tonight and then again tomorrow before I start the turkey, so I will hope my baking turns out as nice as yours.

I know those birds!!! Your stitching is so neat and such a lovely idea with lavender. Ella picks lavender from the garden most weeks to keep under her pillow to ensure sweet dreams.

We don' celebrate Thanksgiving here in Slovenia but anyway, I wish you, Carol, a lovely day with your loved ones. I wish I could see what you baked, I am sure it is delicious! :)

Victoria, yes, 'your' birds! :) I think they are the cutest of them all. It is interesting that Ella likes the smell of lavender, I think that most children don't. Good idea, putting the lavender under the pillow. I will try that myself, now when I have lots of dried lavender.

Barbara, odgovor zate je pa ob tvojem komentarju ob mojih belih in rdečih ptičkah.
